The Swiss company Dynamic Test Center, specialized in investigating and analyzing vehicle safety incidents, shared a rather unique crash test on April 6.

In that test they used a truck loaded with 770 kilograms in cement blocks in which they placed a test dummy in the driver's seat.

Those responsible for this trial accelerated this vehicle to hit a wall at 50 kilometers per hour.

As a result of the collision, the cargo moved forward at full speed, the seats came off their anchor and both the dash and the windshield were smashed.

 

The doll did not end up being crushed by the blocks, but Dynamic Test Center notes that in a real similar situation, passengers are "at high risk" of injury.
